  1. Hi all, In one of my laptops, Malwarebytes detected some threats I deleted them and after that, I ran a custom (full) scan on all my laptops the custom (full) scan took about 12 to 14 hours, then after one day I ran a custom scan to all my laptops again but this time I took way too long right now it's on 25 hours and the scan is still not complete! knowing that I didn't add any more data I just ran it once again so what's the problem in your opinion? is a custom (full) scan is necessary in case of suspecting any threats or is a regular scan is enough! P.S: the (scan for rootkits)
  2. Why are Hyper Scan and Customs Scan options hidden from view? I had to find out by reading some of the version four manual. Doesn't Malwarebytes want the casual user to perform these types of scan? In case others are having difficulty finding these hidden options, click on the cross-hairs and in the pop-up click "Advanced scanners". Hope this saves other some time.
  3. I’ve been gotten an error message when I perform up the first custom scan with all scan option are checked-marks on this device . first time I’ve seen this error . Custom Scan Option A rootkit scan requires the entire system drive to be selected for scanning . Please update the area of the system you want to scan to includ the entire system drive or disable rootkit scanning for this scan. why this error is to pop-up and why should to disable it . is this a problem with custom scan feature or something else ?
  4. Does the "Scan Registry" part of Malwarebytes threat scanner do anything? Reason I ask is every time I run a scan (Threat or custom, doesn't matter), the process seems to skip over the Scan Registry process really fast. Every other process (Scan Memory, Scan Startup Files, etc.) takes anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or so, but Scan Registry finishes in what seems like 0.001 seconds. Not sure if it's actually doing anything.
  5. Hi, i was hoping you might be able to help determine whether my PC has an issue or not. Firstly I'd like to say that my PC is ancient so don't laugh! And I'm pretty average at best in computer knowledge. When I run a threat scan MBAM doesn't detect anything but when I do a custom scan (everything ticked in the options for scanning c: drive only) I get around 30 detections. But every time before the scan finished the screen goes black (with only the cursor visible) and I am unable to navigate anywhere and have to manually turn the computer off and on again. Report details below. Th
  6. I am also having this exact same issue. Has there been a resolve on this? This is also a on multiple machines, one of which is also a new machine. both windows 10 home edition machines and installs of 3.0.6 MBAM.
  7. The upgrade to Malwarebytes introduced a bug not present in 2.x, which I labelled "Custom scan". When you create a "Custom Scan" in "Settings" / "Scan Schedule", "Operation Type" = "Custom Scan", "Schedule Frequency" = "Weekly", "Recurrence" = "1 week", and click "Customize Scan", put checkmarks in "Scan Memory Objects", "Scan Startup and Registry Settings", "Scan within archives", and "Scan for Rootkits", then select one or more drives (e.g., put checkmarks on drive "C:" and "D:"), and click "OK" and "OK" to save the settings; the program promptly forgets the selected drives. You
  8. Hello, I have never done a custom scan before so last night I thought I would give it a go. Its been around 5 hours (I paused it for couple of hours) and it is still on scan file system but it is not really "stuck" but it keeps going? Here is a screen shot attached. It's been 5 hours and it doesn't usually take this long. My computer is windows 10 64 bits. Does anyone know if this is crashing, malware, virus, trojon..... etc? What should I do?
  9. Strange thing happened with my custom scan this morning. After selecting custom scan from the scan type selection page, the configure scan button appeared as it should. However, when I clicked the configure button it went directly to scan giving me no opportunity to select folders etc. This initial scan did not include a file system scan. When the scan was completed the finish button appeared. When clicked, the program went into a scan which did include a file system scan but again without any opportunity to select folders. When this scan completed, the finish button appeared. When clic
  10. Hi, basically I have two questions: 1.) How do you run a full scan? The way I tried to do it was go into Custom Scan and select my C drive as well as all folders with in it that were shown. Is this the right way to run a full scan? 2.) What is the rough time it takes to run a full scan (if question 1 was done correctly) and a threat scan. My full scan took about 2 hours & 15 minutes whereas my threat scan takes about 20-30 minutes (was previously 40). Is this about right? I don't have lots of items on my computer nor is it bare with just a few apps and games. Does this sound abou
